INTERNATIONAL PROJECT

Posted by Wendell Ross on Jun 25, 2014
(The following is a note from club project coordinator Wendell Ross providing a July 2016 update from the 2014 project. Additional photos have been added to the international project photo album on the right.)
Recently  I visited the hospital where the Crilap Foundation that the East
Alton Rotary Club and Barranquilla Oriente Rotary Club cosponsored was
located. I found out that it had moved to a location in the annex of a new
hospital called Puertoazul in February.  So the wife and I took a taxi to
it.  The sad news is that the director I first met had past this last
January. Her then assistant Katia Mendoza is now Executive Director.  And
now the Crilap foundation is called Fabrica de Sonrisas Foundation. 
Website www.fabricadesonrisas.co.  There is a page where you can make
private donations.
When I entered the office and mentioned East Alton Rotary Club you should
have seen their faces light up. It was very heart warming. We talked about
the project.  Our clubs project helped 15 children's lives change.  There
were  surgeries this day for 2 more  happening.  Also the foundation had
35 applicants for  surgeries.  So as in many places in the world this is a
continuing need.  I was glad to be a part of helping so many children in
need via using Rotary International.
On the offices walls were 5 pictures/photos of
some of the children that they helped.  4 of the 5 pictures/photos are of
the children that were helped from our Clubs project.
 
(What follows is the timeline and reflections of the cleft palate international project coordinator Wendell Ross. A photo album titled "international project" can be found in the right side of our home page.)
It is interesting how things in life turn out.  I went to Barranquilla Colombia for some cold business calls in Sept. of 2010. At the hotel I was staying at there was a photographer taking some pictures. I started talking to him  to try and get some business leads and also to get some ideas of the culture of the country. I mentioned Rotary. He told me there were 3 Rotary Clubs in Barranquilla. We got talking about Rotary International projects an he mentioned about a school in the Pueblo that his aunt ran that was having problems with the building.

SCAM ALERT

Posted by Rick Hooks on Dec 03, 2013

A new email falsely claiming to be from Rotary International President Ron D. Burton has been targeting members of Rotary. The email has the subject line “Final Reminder” and claims that the recipient has been approved for $2 million in unclaimed funds from the Rotary Club of London District Office. The email is a scam. Rotary staff is working to resolve the issue. Avoid being the victim of scams by deleting any email that appears suspicious.
